Early voting available at county registrar’s office
Election Day isn’t until Nov. 4, but many in Madison County don’t want to wait to touch that voter screen.
Over 1,000 people have visited the Madison County Registrar’s Office in the county government complex to vote in the 2008 general elections.
County registrar Tracy Dean said that as of 1 p.m. Tuesday, 1,039 county residents had participated in early voting, which began on Sept. 22 and will extend through Oct. 31.
“We’ve got a few here right now,” she said Tuesday shortly after lunch.
The final day to register to vote in the general election was Oct. 6. Dean said the registrar’s office doesn’t have an official tally yet on how many voters are now registered in Madison County. She said there is still considerable data to enter and that the figure may not be available until next week.
However, as of Oct. 1, 14,244 people were registered to vote in the upcoming election.
Dean also said her office has mailed out roughly 465 absentee ballots.
She reminded voters that they can come to the registrar’s office to cast their ballots between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on weekdays in October. Those office hours will be extended from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. the week prior to the election, Oct. 27-31.
There will be no early voting the day before the election, Nov. 3.
